Capsicum cardenasii is a perennial plat. The plant is around 24-36 in. (60-90 cm) in height. The flowers are violet. The fruit shape is round and the fruit size small (0,5 - 1 cm). Initially the fruits are green changing then to red.
The berries are usually harvested before ripening (thus still green) and used freshly (salsa, salads) or dried as spice. They taste very sharply with an interesting flavour. In Peru and Bolivia one finds often dished plates with these fruits (ulupica). For cooking ulupicas are used rarely, since one prefers other pepers.
